I work in the film industry, so finding a very specific, concise, tasteful photographer was incredibly important to me. I found Michael through a friend, who had Michael work at their wedding, and thought he did great work there.

We couldn't have been happier with Michael's work at our wedding and in the lead up process. He was very professional. Did his diligence in getting to know us and what we were looking for and was very concise through out. Did the proper prep work, checking out the venue and asking great questions prior to the wedding. Some of the moments he captured at our wedding and some of his finest pictures will be absolutely priceless for us as we spend the rest of our lives together. Michael is a wonderful technician of his camera as well. He did incredible things with the lighting in the venue, time lapse of dinner, and his work of capturing moments on the the dance party was exceptional. Hopefully we never get married again ;), but if we do, Michael will be there.

Michael has been simply amazing to work with. The care he took with our engagement photos and wedding photos was so amazing. Michael is the first person we booked for our wedding because we knew we couldn't get married without him. His attention to detail is impeccable . I cannot say enough praise for Michael and his work! We absolutely love him!

Michael documented our wedding this last September, and my family and I couldn't be happier with our experience or with his work. Michael is very professional and had a great little system for how he plans and shoots, but is also good about fitting himself into your plans. Even a relatively small "low-key" wedding like ours can be a little crazy-making, but Michael helped keep things tilted toward sanity. He had great suggestions for organizing the day so that we could spend the most time possible with our guests and just enjoying the day. Michael also has an uncanny ability to hone in on really important moments, and the really important people. He finds ways to get the most remarkable, lively shots, while being completely unobtrusive. And as a result, the pictures are really exceptional. In sum, he's great, and you should hire him.

Michael Tallman (or Michael Tallman Photography) was the only OUTSTANDING experience of my entire wedding. Every other person I worked with paled in comparison. He was easy to work with, smart, creative, relaxed, and most important - is what I'm about to say --

Michael Tallman is a true artist. An artist who happens to make his living documenting other people's life events. This is not true of all wedding photographers. I actually have yet to see another wedding photographer's portfolio that is as skillfully done as Michael Tallman. Now, as he is an artist, I had the privilege of having him work with me. Every bride who works with him does. And as talented as he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he moves on to another field in his artist's journey. If you book him - you are lucky. He combines classic technique, with modern and documentary style, which at the end gives you a tasteful combination of both color, and black and white photos, that are timeless, real, and not overly blurred from the photoshop.

If you want to look like a posing Cosmo model, go with a different photographer. If you want to have lifelong memories of your day, your event, the reality of the emotion and depth of feeling - I recommend Michael Tallman.

As the Mother of the Bride, I am delighted with the service of Michael Tallman. He was well-prepared as to his knowledge of family members and relationships and wedding details. He was in the background at all times as he took the pictures, not interfering with the flowing of the event. The pictures are extraordinary--beautiful color, creative settings, and traditional family member groupings that will be treasured. The picture of the wedding party with all of those attending the wedding is one of my favorites.

Like most brides, I did a lot of reading and research when planning my wedding. I read stories from joyous brides recounting their special day, with all the intricacies they had spent months planning going off without a hitch. When time fades and new memories vie for prominence, how are those details of your special day captured? It was with this thought in mind that I contracted with Michael Tallman to capture the memories of my day.

When my husband and I sat down to plan our wedding, we knew we wanted the feeling of our day to be this—a dinner party with our dearest family and friends. In our initial meeting with Michael, I had no idea of how to convey what I wanted our photography to look like. I didn’t have to. Michael drank coffee with us as we talked about our wedding, our hobbies, who we were as a couple. He got to know us. He knew what was important to us and the final product was beyond description. Michael captured the essence of our wedding, a priceless memory that will retell the story of our day forever.

Not only did Michael provide an exceptional product, but the experience of working with him could not have been more ideal. Always the utmost professional, he was prompt with communication, and we met in person a total of three times prior to the wedding. I was delighted when he wanted to attend our rehearsal to make sure he knew the venue and the wedding party members. That was a step above and unexpected. When you hire a larger chain photographer, oftentimes you don’t even know who your specific photographer is until they show up the day of. We felt like we knew Michael, and felt like he knew what we wanted, and that proved to be true. The best decision we made in preserving the memories of our wedding day was choosing Michael Tallman as our photographer.
